    Fantasia

    I have often marvelled at conditional problems, and found this one amusing

    FEN Viewer


    It calls on white to mate in 8 moves and the injunction is that he may take no black pawn,

    have fun, Macavity

    PS Will be back to edit FEN position to make it appear

    Have got the position within the code, but it only is displaying a tiny interface? anyone in admin would be delighted to know what i have done wrong? Please would someone fix this, and suggest how to remedy in future?

    thanks in advance, M

    That bad man Sam!

    And here is another gem:
    One of Sam Loyd's famous puzzles is this:
    Play a game of 17 moves where all the pieces, except the kings, come off the board.

    Solution:

    Amazing how empty the board can seem isn't it?

    Take care, God Bless, Macavity

    Have we discovered any checks?

    this one is quite interesting in that the premise was to give 10 discovered checks in a row,

    as before I expect the FEN position to not work, but hopefully someone will tell me how to fix that soon,

    In any case, enjoy and God Bless, Macavity

    I reproduced this by not using the code function.
